So I have started reducing my steroids down, after a rocky start, I am now reducing by 1mg a week. Today sees me start on 7mg.
I have also been attempting to diet. I lost almost a stone before Christmas but have since put it back on, it is so easier to do when your on steroids and when you work from home.
So, I am reducing the steroids and we have booked a holiday for August, so motivation to lose the weight too.
I thought I would start a blog post, and each week I would "weigh in" on the blog, that way I have to be honest and truthful, and you can all boo me when I lose nothing and Cheer when i lose half pounds at a time.
You may also want to join in too. I am following the slimming world diet, so food combining, basically red days and green days, no mixing carbs and proteins, but allowing yourself daily treats (aka syns!).
It worked before xmas when I was on a 15mg of steroid a day, so it has to work now.
I am 5ft 7" (170cm)
I am a dress size 14 (sometimes a 16)
My BMI (27.6) puts me in the middle of Overweight weight category.
So Today I top the scales at 80 kg or 12 Stone 8 lb in old money.
Wish me luck fellow lupies ..............
